Speaking of cars … commercial shoot on Alki Beach

Lots of questions tonight about a film shoot on Alki Beach. Photo just in, courtesy of Don Brubeck (thank you!). We’re told it was a car commercial – that would explain the car on the sand! – reportedly for the Subaru Impreza.

    Just so I won’t get in trouble with my Seal Sitter wife and friends: I am not advocating for driving cars on the beach.

    I wonder if it was local or national? Seattle is definitely very Subaru-friendly!

    I think if your Subaru is registered in Seattle you’re required to wear socks and sandals while driving it.

    Subaru was also shooting a commercial in Belltown yesterday. It was really really annoying. They took up at least 8 parking spots and entire private parking lot with their gear.

    In Seattle all new Subarus come standard with a KEXP sticker.

    Curious if they sweep away the tire tracks after the shoot?

    @sc I saw them sweeping away the tire tracks after they were done.

    According to the crew the TV shot will air in December sometime. He hinted that it had some Christmas elements to it, that the crew was dealing with (or going to add in snow) later.

    @Brian You may find it annoying, but keep in mind that the kind of work they were shooting brings in a ton of money into our local economy and provides many jobs to locals. A minor annoyance like parking is worth the longer term investment of added jobs, a boost to our economy and the benefit of “free” advertising for Seattle through the commercial. I hope there is more work like this in town. It is good for all of us.

Sorry, comment time is over.
